One final note> We would like to point out that our descriptions are as accurate as we can be! We try to describe each and every restoration without drawn out redundant explanations and overselling of each and every detail! For sure you will never hear us mention "other sellers" in a negative manor!! There are many other fine sellers here on that produce beautiful restorations.We will always stay on point in our descriptions! After all they are only radios,not million dollar homes! This is a "hobby" and an passion for us more than a money making venture. Our radio sets speak for themselves,in many cases we try to photo shoot them under natural outdoor lighting as they would look sitting in your display area. Not floating in the air with washed out backgrounds and over-exposed and over saturated. On rare occasions we will shoot a set in an indoor photo tent due to poor weather conditions only! We have been offering restored radios and amateur radio gear on since 2001,and 7+ years as Oldradiodaze and still counting! We would like to invite you to browse our on line Flickr page at Yahoo that exhibits many past restoration projects we have shared with our repeat customer base here on ! Just plug in "Flickr oldradiodaze" on google... Thanks for shopping Oldradiodaze!!
Thanks for tuning in!
